T8 | Limited Edition Trucker Hat

Very excited to share this special limited edition Hong Kong trucker hat I designed for T8.

T8 designs running gear, designed by runners. Their commandos are amazing btw!

As you might be aware (because I talk about it all the time, lol), I love trail running, and we are so blessed to have world-class trails on our doorstep here in Hong Kong.

I wanted to reflect the juxtaposition of nature and urban skyscrapers that we have here, that makes Hong Kong so unique, along with some of the wildlife we often encounter when running or hiking in the mountains. Finally, of course the national flower, the Bauhinia.


The truckers come in two styles. We recommend the Relaxed Fit Technical Trucker for maximum running comfort, while the Tall Technical Trucker sits higher on your head and is more suited for regular casual wear.

The Pig Parade

Launched in March 2019, The Sovereign Art Foundation’s ‘Pig Parade’ public art project presents a citywide line-up of enigmatic painted pig sculptures to engage the Hong Kong public. Each pig represents a unique art piece as interpreted by some of today’s most sought-after local and international contemporary artists. Once exhibited, the artworks will be sold through various means and funds given to charitable causes helping disadvantaged children in the region.

Pigs can be found in several locations throughout Hong Kong this year.

Youread more about my two pigs here

The piglet, Pepita Regilt, is currently on display at the beautiful Madame Fu restaurant in Tai Kwun. Visit the SAF website to find out more, and snap a piggie to be in with a chance to win prizes!

The Met Gala is the annual fund-raiser for the Met’s Costume Institute, and tied to its spring exhibition. This year’s, “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” celebrates the pervasive influence of camp.
Lady Gaga, the co-chair of the evening stole the show with not one but FOUR outfit changes during her 16 minute arrival!!

Im 100% on-board with this complete MET GAGA takeover, and obviously, I had to illustrate it!


LOVE YOU GAGA

ART CENTRAL

Hey Guys - if you are at Art Central this year, be sure to check out The Sovereign Art Foundation's booth. They asked a selection of artists to create their own pigs. 
I made 2, one is very noisy 😂😂😂!

Large Pig: B.A Con
Each year, Hong Kong households and corporates throw away more than 70,000 tonnes of waste computers and waste electrical and electronic equipment. So ravenous are we for the latest gadgetry, that we have become gluttons for the latest must-have electronics with no thought to how this impacts our environment. 
B.A Con is made entirely from up cycled materials and is fitted with motion sensors and speakers, designed to surprise the viewer.

She is fitted with both a rechargeable battery and also a mains plug. She has a volume control switch near her tail, and also a power switch. She will run on a fully charged battery for several days. The noises generated are motion triggered from around 1m distance, and are randomly generated by a software algorithm designed specifically for this artwork.

Art Central Pig for Sovereign Art Foundation


Small Pig: Pepita Regilt 
Pepitat Regilt, is the young offspring of B.A Con. Born innocent, she is yet to be fully corrupted by our technology obsessed society. But, with 85 percent of parents allowing children to use technology in the home and kids under 9 years old averaging two hours of screen use per day, it is inevitable that she will become part of a generation more immersed in technology than any generation before. 
(A gilt pig is a female under the age of 1 year. Gilt also refers to the act of applying gold leaf to a surface. Pepita Regilt is an anagram of Pirate Piglet 😏 )

HKSC | Cardeaux


3 months ago, I tore 3 of my glutes and my piriformis - apparently quite the 'unique injury'; most likely from my bad biomechanics, and lack of strength training. 


Ive been going to see @cardsbeargrylls at Hong Kong Sports Clinic , and she has helped tailor me a specific rehab programme to help get me back where I belong: on the trails and hopefully racing again :D 

Here she is dry needling my butt, an experience that is painful but in a really good way (much like foam rollers / DOMs / deep stretching). If you need a physio, I cannot recommend this superstar highly enough! 
Thanks Cards! Here's to a 2019 year of non-wonky knees and a superbutt!
